Global Information Group Releases GIG3DGO(TM) Version 3.3 - Linux-Based 3D Graphics Software, Enhanced and Available for Sale at www.gig3d.com

Sep 27, 2001, 01:00 ET from Global Information Group USA, Inc.

    ROCK HILL, S.C., Sept. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- GIG3DGO(TM), Linux-based
 software for 3D modeling, animation and rendering, is available for purchase
 following revisions that increase its speed, reliability and usability.
     "Linux users are starving for professional level and cost-effective
 desktop applications," noted George Down, President of Global Information
 Group USA, Inc. (GIG(TM)).  "Linux use continues to climb at double digit
 rates at the same time new applications for 3D graphics technology are
 advancing rapidly," he added.  "The timing is ideal for us to roll out this
 great software at such an affordable price."
     GIG3DGO(TM), a complete solids-based 3D graphics system and highly photo-
 realistic raytrace renderer, is based on past UNIX software used worldwide to
 produce music videos, create virtual TV sets and provide 3D visualization of
 CAD/CAE designs by such industry leaders as Herbie Hancock, Endemol
 Entertainment and Kodak(R).
     "We have worked together with users, conducted functionality tests and
 revisited virtually all of the code," said Mr. Down.  "The software possesses
 remarkably photo-realistic rendering capabilities, an easy-to-learn interface
 and sophisticated animation tools - this latest round of enhancements makes a
 very powerful product even better now that it is fully Linux compatible."
     GIG3DGO(TM), which will be marketed under the tagline "Render Reality," is
 believed to be the only solid-modeling 3D graphics software currently running
 on the Linux platform.  Version 3.3 offers the following:
 
     1. Updates that enable the software to run with the latest GNU C libraries
        (glibc 2.2), ensuring greater speed and compatibility with the latest
        Linux distributions.
     2. Increased stability and reliability through a detailed examination and
        improvement of source code.
     3. A full 3D toolset enabling beginners and professional artists alike to
        produce stunning 3D still art and animations on Linux at an affordable
        price point.
 
     Currently, the GIG3DGO Advanced version is available now and is priced at
 a MSRP of US$995 -- but can be purchased for a limited time at an Introductory
 Price of $495 -- on the firm's website, www.gig3d.com.  The firm's CAD
 visualization package, GIGVIZ(TM), as well as other new products, will be
 available on Linux in the coming months, and a new pricing structure will be
 established for the product line at that time.
     GIG is working towards becoming the premier supplier of 3D graphics tools
 on the Linux(R) platform and is collaborating with other companies committed
 to Linux such as Hewlett-Packard(R) and IBM(R).  "Our commitment to Linux is
 rock solid and we see its growth on the desktop as inevitable" says George
 Down.
     GIG(TM) develops and markets applications software running on the LINUX(R)
 and UNIX(R) Operating Systems, currently a complete 3D solid modeling,
 animation and rendering system and CAD visualization products.  The Company
 anticipates the development or acquisition of other software products in the
 future.
     ADVA International Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:   ADII), is the parent company
 of GIG(TM) and focuses on returning value to its shareholders by building
 profitable subsidiary companies based on innovative technology development.
 Both GIG(TM) and ADVA International operate from their headquarters in Rock
 Hill, South Carolina.  For more information visit the Company website at
